Creation Care Hawaii (Episcopal Service Corps Member) -- Camp Mokule`ia, Waialua, HI (Diocese of Hawaii)

This Episcopal Service Corps (ESC) Creation Care, program based at Camp Mokule’ia, offers a year of Christ and Creation centered service focused on sustainable outdoor unified living (SOUL) in intentional community while working toward environmental and social justice through serving others and the land!

Camp Mokule‘ia is a year-round camp owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai’i on Oahu’s northwestern shore. Inspired by both our Episcopal and Hawaiian roots, we endeavor to be a model of such care-ful and abundant living through our operations and programs.

Job Description: During their year of service ESC members live and work in community at the camp, spending days rooted in prayer and reflection, including daily ora et labora and weekly Love Feast, while they work together to divide their time between a variety of tasks such as but not limited to maintaining creative garden spaces, working on system-based sustainability projects, engaging in the ministry of hospitality with our guests, and leading programs with campers on team building, island ecology, and food systems.

Living simply in the SOUL community at Camp Mokule’ia means shared living spaces, bathroom, showers, meals, and kitchen for when meals aren’t served. As a member of ESC, your basic needs will be taken care of with a community food and gas allowance, and a personal stipend monthly, assistance with acquiring health insurance in Hawaii, as well as collective access to one of the camp’s vehicles.

Service year runs from August 1, 2017 – mid to end of July 2018, with the full month of December 2017 off for holiday travel or visiting friends and family. Applications accepted on a rolling basis through June 30th, 2017.

Job Qualifications: ESC members are between the ages of 21 - 29 and self-motivated, lively, responsible, positive, dedicated, and curious with a mind for community, place, and spirit. Candidates are interested in following a call to a balanced, harmonious, and just life that is not only rooted in our Biblical tradition but also inherent in the culture and spiritual traditions of the Hawaiian people, who for almost a thousand years lived harmoniously and sustainably in this remote place.
